Philpost Website Has a New Look

It's good to see that the website of the Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) is being updated and has a new design. I think it's a work in progress as some of the pages still lack content.

I just hope that the webmaster of the site will add an email link where people especially stamp collectors can send their email concerns.

One may notice that Cebu Stamp Club, Incorporated (CSCI) is not included in the Philatelic Clubs page. We were never asked but it would be great if they would. Besides, CSCI and Philpost Region 7 have been working together in promoting philately since 1996. Postmaster General Hector Villanueva even graced Cebu Stamp Club's exhibit in Dumaguete City last year.

What's flattering though is the inclusion of a portion of the Tres de Abril stamp in the site's banner found at the left side. The said stamp is Cebu Stamp Club, Incorporated's legacy to Philippine Philately.

Click on this Cebu Stamp Club link that retells how the Tres de Abril stamp was made.

Below the Philpost website photo shows Cebu Stamp Club officials together with Jose "Kimsoy" Yap Jr. who did the artwork of the stamp.

From left standing: Maria Luisa Potian, Rachel Betos, Teresita Caballero, Patricia "Noeng" Perez, Bee Ling Yap, and Erwin Allan Orosco. Seated are: Fabiolita Ferraris, Jose "Kimsoy" Yap Jr. with the Tres de Abril painting and Richard Allan Uy.
